The Ford Escape Hybrid offers buyers an earth-friendly alternative to regular SUV's. It's hybrid system provides reduced emissions, increased mileage, while still providing all the normal useful SUV features.

The Escape Hybrid is available in Base or Limited trims with either front or four-wheel drive. The Escape Hybrid is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine linked to an electric motor. The net result is acceleration similar to that of a V6. As a full hybrid, the Escape Hybrid can provide truly guilt-free operation by running solely on electric power in low-load conditions. The Hybrid uses a continuously variable transmission, also known as a CVT, that optimally matches the power and gearing. Standard safety features include front airbags, front seat mounted side airbags and side-curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. AdvanceTrac stability control with anti-rollover technology, four-wheel ABS and tire pressure monitoring round-out the impressive list. The Hybrid also offers a convenient AC outlet for powering small devices such as a laptop.

The Escape Hybrid carries-on for 2010 with minimal changes.

Operating in front wheel drive under normal conditions, sensors in each wheel detect slip, and channel power rearward as necessary to maintain your grip.

One thing that impressed me was how quiet the cabin is on the freeway, with its low-revving engine, and new thicker glass and thicker carpeting, the cabin is very quiet, the loudest noise being the tires.

Its part-cute, part-tough styling is just inoffensive enough to appeal to a wide demographic.

The Escape Hybrid drives like a normal vehicle, with the engine controls deciding when the vehicle should be using electric power, or gas power, or both. All a driver does is drive.

Bottom line, you don't give up much in the way of practicality when you choose to wear the "Hybrid" badge.

And, no, you don't have to plug it in.

Like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, the Escape Hybrid has fairly stiff suspension tuning that makes for a firm ride.

At the back of the vehicle, there's a bit less cargo room than a regular Escape has because the hybrid's electric battery pack, composed of 250 D-sized cells in a sealed unit, sits under the cargo floor. So, while a regular Escape offers 29.3 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats and maximum 66.3 cubic feet if the rear seats aren't used by passengers, the corresponding numbers in the hybrid are 27.6 and 65.5 cubic feet, respectively.

A terrific compact SUV.

Introduction

The Ford Escape looks like a little truck among small SUVs.Its styling reminds us of Ford's larger, truck-based sport utility vehicles.The Escape's ride height and seating position are a bit higher than competitors such as the Honda CR-V, and it can tow up to 3,500 pounds, which is substantially more than most other vehicles in the class.

Yet the Ford Escape still delivers the advantages of unit-body, car-based competitors such as the Honda CR-V.Its smooth ride and agile handling make for enjoyable driving, and its compact dimensions make the Escape easy to park.

The standard four-cylinder engine is adequate for all-purpose driving while the V6 offers quicker acceleration performance.All variants, including the V6 and Escape Hybrid, deliver some of the best EPA mileage ratings in the class.All models are offered with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

For the most part, the Hybrid drives just like a conventional gas-only Escape.It's a well-executed package.It offers better fuel economy and lower emissions but demands little additional effort or knowledge from the driver.

The Escape provides comfortable seating for four, or five in a pinch.Folding the rear seats opens a good sized cargo area with a flat floor, and space behind the seat surpasses that in the trunk of a typical sedan.There are lots of interior storage spaces, the finish is upscale and pleasing, and feature function and switches are among the best.

Escape was redesigned for 2008.For 2010, changes are minor.An Integrated Blind Spot Mirror, MyKey programmable vehicle key, Rear View Camera System, and Active Park Assist are now available, and the Escape also features hands-free SYNC with Traffic, Directions & Information.All the features improve safety and reduce driver distractions.

The Ford Escape remains one of the more appealing vehicles in its class, regardless of price, and certainly one of the better values.Those shopping for a small SUV should put it on their short list, especially those who appreciate its big-truck styling.
